Scramble the egg with the olive oil.

Toast the bread with the havarti. I used my toaster oven for this, a regular oven would work too.

Oops. I cheated on Sriracha. The Valentina really does work better on this one though.

Quickest Breakfast of Champions Ever

Ok here it is… Quickest power breakfast ever: Greek yogurt, steel cut oats and berries. Simple. So quick I even made, photographed and blogged about it this morning!

I’ve had some steel cut oats for a while. Couldn’t figure out just what to do with them. I thought why not replace regular, high calorie granola with some of these and see what happens?

It was good! Use vanilla Greek yogurt or brown sugar for extra sweetness. The oats can be a little gritty and dry, so stir them into the yogurt for a hearty texture.

You’ll need:
1/2 cup Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1/3 cup steel cut oats
2-4 strawberries

Serves 1.

Wash and slice the strawberries.
